Taxes pay reasons why
Letter to the Romans Thirteen v-Five thru Eight
5 Therefore, it is necessary to be subject not only because of the wrath but also because of conscience. 6 This is why you also pay taxes, for the authorities are ministers of God, devoting themselves to this very thing. 7 Pay to all their dues, taxes to whom taxes are due, toll to whom toll is due, respect to whom respect is due, honor to whom honor is due. 8 Owe nothing to anyone, except to love one another; for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.
Shout out to my dad’s spirit in Christ; Happy 84th Birthday! Love you. This type of love sometimes seems to be a tax as I hear Jesus say, “Pay to Caesar what is owed to Caesar” compelling Paul to describe our elected officials as ministers of God and that basically taxes should be paid. Well isn’t that what Jesus said? Yes, pay our taxes and owe nothing to anyone sure makes a man feel accomplished as Paul reminds us to be indebted to our love as our neighbor by loving them as ourselves. Yes, sometimes this seems difficult but the surrender overcomes the need for any disgust of bigotry where the stomach turns and mankind loses a heartbeat for those who can’t come to God’s loving piety journey then they remain against God by their actions of self unable to fulfill the law of loving one another as Paul so described. “Respect to whom respect is due, honor to whom honor is due. 8 Owe nothing to anyone, except to love one another; for the one who loves another has fulfilled the law.” Have you loved and forgave as instructed? Amen.
Join us in our daily prayer of forgiveness. I am sorry Lord. I believe You died and rose for me. Prayers for our children Gabriel, Julian, Alexandra, Jeffrey and Allen and our grandchildren Oliver, Julian and Elliott. Prayers for dying. Silence for the prayers of others. Holy Spirit and St Joseph CC & Holy Mother Church. In Jesus Precious Blood by His Name we pray. Amen.

**Taxes pay reasons why**
Conscious of wrath subjection necessary
Taxes pay reasons why
God’s ministers are authorities
Dues all pay taxes don’t deny
Due is respect whom respect due
Due is honor whom honor true
Nothing owe anyone another one’s love pursue
Law fulfilled when another loved peer review
